The streets in the centre of Barcelona on New Year’s Eve fill up with revellers, as tourists and locals alike mill around on the hunt for fun and celebrations. The most popular spots are Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya and the Plaça Reial.
Also, the beach offers many possibilities everything is at hand: restaurants, lounge-bars and clubs on the beach.The waterfront is a very atmospheric place to bring in the bells, and you’ve got your pick of restaurants and bars to choose from. The midnight fireworks definitely lend it an extra special touch, and make for a must-see spectacle!
The most popular places in this part of the city are in the Olympic Port, which has an infinite number of bars, restaurants, clubs and lounge-bars on the beach, including Shôko, Opium Mar, Sotavento and Carpe Diem.
If you fancy keeping the party going after midnight with dancing and music, we would recommend the most fashionable and most crowded places, which are also the largest and have the widest selection of music. Try Opium Mar (house), Boulevard (house-techno, rock, alternative) Razzmatazz (electro, rock, chillout) and Ottozutz (hip-hop, rock/indie, house). If you want to go to a huge event with music and famous DJs, don’t miss Maremagnum. Also not to be missed is the New Year’s party organized at Jamboree.
If you're planning to spend New Years Eve in Barcelona, I recommend you stay at Barcelona Urbany Hostel!
